Carson King, sadly, had a bad start to the year, as the New Year heralds in new beginnings. CallMeCarson, a well-known Twitch gamer, has been accused of having inappropriate conversations with minors and “grooming” one of his young admirers.
CallMeCarson Allegations: Victims and Former Partners
Sam, an 18-year-old woman, was his first complainant, who came forward through a Twitter thread. King was charged with “grooming,” which is defined as “establishing a friendship, trust, and emotional connection with a child or young person in order to manipulate, exploit, and abuse them.”
She claimed to be 17 years old when she tweeted King, who was 19 at the time. Then King began sending her private messages on Twitter and Discord. Sam also included inappropriate and sexually explicit screenshots of King’s response.

Following Sam’s allegations, another purported victim, “@Copiicatt,” came forward and revealed in a tweet that she and King exchanged nude Snapchat photos when she was 17 and he was 20. Former collaborators such as JOKO, Keemstar, and Charlie Dalgleish came forward with their own King experiences after the claims were made public. So, what happened to CallMeCarson?
King has been missing from all of his social media accounts since the allegations were made, and he has not publicly responded to the allegations. After months of silence, King has finally spoken.
Is CallMeCarson Returning to Social Media?
On June 20, King tweeted a six-word statement that received over 163,000 likes and 23,000 retweets. Although it’s unclear what he’s referring to, the tweet implies he’ll respond to the charges against him soon.
His remark sparked outrage, with Twitter users accusing him of pedophilia and demanding that his account be deactivated.
This was his first public statement since an error in May when he posted a photo of US Vice President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, along with their polling numbers for the September 2020 elections.
give me a little bit longer 👍

He deleted this tweet, followed by another that said, “unintentional tweet, keep going.”
On August 13, he made his first official public appearance on Twitch streamer Matthew “Mizkif” Rinaudo’s stream. King did Mizkif’s YouTube introductions, and he later came into the stream and asked for directions to the bathroom.
King can also be seen roaming around Mizkif’s room, expressing his desire to see it. He then admitted that he had secretly watched all of Mizkif’s videos and that he had thoroughly enjoyed Mizkif’s streaming.
Audiences were taken aback by his sudden reappearance, let alone in such a dramatic fashion. And, predictably, they felt conflicted about it. Some fans were overjoyed to see him, while others reminded the Twittersphere of King’s charges.
It appears that King is testing the waters ahead of his comeback.
